Doc Martin is
Director:  Nigel Cole
Writer:  Richard Stoneman
Portwenn takes on Port Carran in the annual rowing contest but when rival skipper Alice Taylor's cut
head brings on Martin's haemophobia, causing him to faint, the whole village finds out.  Martin is also
concerned that Graham Hendy, husband of crèche owner Mel, exhibits signs of alcoholism.  Graham
claims to be tee-total but Martin discovers the reason when Graham crashes his car during Louisa's
farewell speech as headmistress.  The race goes ahead with Portwenn showing considerable
sportsmanship.  On return to the surgery Martin receives bad news.
